Trump

Red or Blue?

Anyone who has parented a toddler knows the game of pretending to offer free choice without actually doing so. We say, “Do you want to wear the blue shirt or the red one?” hoping to remove the beloved but stained, too-small, ready-for-the-rag bag, tie-dyed option. Sometimes, it even works. Much of the news today treats...

Trumping Patton

A few years ago, I began comparing President Trump to General Patton. Other than learning about the World War II leader as a part of overall history, my first closer look at him came when I started to watch the movie Patton starring George C. Scott. Very shortly into the film, I turned it off,...

Dear Ivanka

Please stop trying to help mothers. This may sound like a strange request from a mother of seven, five of whose daughters are raising little ones right now. But, you see, when the government gets involved ‘helping,’ there are always unintended consequences. Sometimes, ideas that sound good get implemented and turn out to have terrible...
